going to come to the fore. i think independents might. in many states in the united states today, there are more registered independents or unenrolled or the states have different names for them. who are not affiliated with either party. and i think there are more people -- i'm not the only person who is fed up with the high level of partisanship, and i think, you know, there have already been independents elected governors in some states, some local communities are getting rid of party designations for, you know, races for mayor and city council, so i think we may see slowly perhaps a rise of the independents politically. >> thank you. >> hi, i'm from washington jefferson college. you actually already answered two of my questions, but i guess i was wondering, since barack obama already, you know, tried to enhance the role of the congress, by letting them do what they're supposed to do, do you think that he will continue this encouragement and have them keep doing what they're supposed to do or do you think that the criticism of what he tried to do will maybe stop him in the futu

could be about other possible attacks on the united states. and i really believe the president and attorney general holder really should rethink this. they should really rething this rigid commitment to the criminal justice system. after all, this guy came from outside the country. what he was planning was an attack on america. this is a war-like act. he should not be treated like a domestic criminal. >> larry: can you treat someone as a military combatant and then later try them criminally? >> you can do anything you want. the justice department could move him around in all different ways. the reality is in this particular case, he should have been treated as an enemy combatant. after all, the president and the attorney general have authorized military tribunals. now, if you are going to have military tribunals and you're going to try some people in a military tribunal, somebody who comes to the united states with a bomb to blow up an airplane in one of our cities should be treated as a war time criminal, not like a domestic criminal. and that may be an academic dispute for so

support of the president of the united states and the government of the united states. we're moving as quickly as is possible. we're moving aggressively with all the assets available to this great government. we're saving lives and we're begin a full-scale recovery, but, put this in focus. put this in focus. there is one, one airport. the entire world is trying to get help to haiti. we're only able to land because of one apron, one apron in the airport. one taxiway. 48 aircraft on the ground a day, from all over the world. that includes the u.n. trying to resupply their people, and they were devastated. that includes that the ability to refurbish and try to get back up on its feet, the mission, 7,000 folks on the ground for some time. we were able to, and correct me, general, if i'm wrong, i believe we were able to get yesterday 17 airframes in. we have the capacity to send 700 airframes. so what i want the american people to understand is, we are here in a position of trying to help another country, and we are going by as we should their priorities. they're telling us what they wan
. thank you so much. >> reporter: in the meantime, back in the united states, obviously a lot of concern for the many families with loved ones in haiti. right now, one college campus is awaiting word on information about a group of students and faculty in haiti when the earthquake struck. twelve students from lynn university in south florida were on a humanitarian mission to distribute food and clothing and visit orphanages so far. the school has received word that parents have heard five students are safe. other parents who have yet to hear anything at all are trying to remain hopeful. >> a real loving person, it was something the school was offering, she really wanted to do it, she felt like it was a good cause and wanted to go on this trip. i talked to her sunday night and she was very upbeat, saying she had to get up at the crack of dawn, and looked on her facebook post, she always posts something there, it said it's 36 degrees and i'm out to save the world. >> the tight -- title of this course was journey for hope, haiti, and that's what we've got, we're hopeful. we know these stude

are killed or injured. they have no emergency services to rely on now. the united states is trying to help with civilian and military aid. they are also sending in rescue teams. >> the main thing that is are needed are search andres cue and immediate assistance for food and water for people trapped in buildings. the search andres cue is going to be a priority for the government and organizations in haiti. >> with so many of the phone and power lines down, we are getting word from your fellow viewers, i-reporters in haiti. jonathan works with a church group and here he is describing what he saw. >> three-story houses collapsed on to the one below it. i saw fences, block wall fences fallen on a motorcycle. one woman, i could only see her head, the rest of her body was trapped under the fence, under a block wall. she had, obviously, i think she was dead. she has blood coming out of her eyes, nose and ears. >> an american airlines flight from haiti to miami was boarding when the earthquake struck. some chose not to get on. the flight took off and landed safely. passengers say they weren't exac
condition. but there is such a connection between the united states and haiti that there is a lot of americans here who are trying to get out. >> cnn's anderson cooper. there you see him on the scene trying to rescue a little girl. anderson, we hope they do rescue her and if there is any development, we'll get back to you. appreciate it. food aid is starting to reach the people who need it the most. our karl penhaul is port-au-prince and he joins us now. what is the scene now. >> reporter: as night falls, in fact, the aid operations stop. certainly those that are backed by the united nations, because they have very strict security guidelines, and, of course, this is one of the problems that the united nations who has its peacekeeping force here are very mindful, very worried about, the potential breakout of violence and also general chaos associated with that food distribution. now earlier on, as you know, because we were talking at the time, we saw an american helicopter swooping down, about ten feet off the ground and dumped boxes of aid off the side on to the ground there. that
facilities all over the city. some places have been reinforced by doctors from the united states an overseas who have come here to help, that existed before. others are completely contained field hospitals that have been flown in and are up and running now. there is a big problem with coordination. units that have specialized care for things like orthopedic surgery which is desperately needed, or people who get bruises get sent to these specialized facilities and there's nobody coordinating it. there's just a complete lack of coordination. even the doctors on the ground don't know what other beds and facilities are available and because of the short animal of fuel, because of all sorts of other logistic problems it is very difficult to get all these patients moved around. as that happens people die because we're really getting to be a long way off from the earthquake now so increasingly, people who would have been just fine if they had gone to the equivalent of an american emergency room are now in a situation where they they're dying of infections because they're just not getting treatment.
for you tonight. little samuel is in the united states flown in from haiti with 80 other orphans. he's right here. he'll join us with his family, next. ♪ it has the agility to avoid the unexpected... ♪ ...the power to take on any mission, and the space to accommodate precious cargo, because every great action hero needs a vehicle. ♪ i have asthma. and when my symptoms-the coughing, wheezing, tightness in my chest came back- i knew i had to see my doctor. he told me i had choices in controller medicines. we chose symbicort. symbicort starts to improve my lung function within 15 minutes. that's important to me because i know the two medicines in symbicort are beginning to treat my symptoms and helping me take control of my asthma. and that makes symbicort a good choice for me. symbicort will not replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. and should not be taken more than twice a day. symbicort contains formoterol. medicines like formoterol may increase the chance of asthma-related death. so, it is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on other asthma medicines. see yo
and certainly from the united states' perspective, get at those safe havens, where al qaeda leadership still lives and plans and is -- leads al qaeda and certainly is very much tied to threatening us and there's no better indication of that than what happened here in detroit on the 25th of december. so an awful lot of effort there, the president's decision to add the 30,000 troops to increase and accelerate the civilian surge into afghanistan, to focus on the development, to focus on governance from the districts up through national level, to really focus on corruption as well, and i believe we've got the right leadership there and now from certainly our main goal in afghanistan and pakistan, over the next couple of years is to execute that strategy. don't leave the broader middle east and south asia without talking about iran. usually when i talk about the broader middle east, i may academically get this wrong, but it's sort of tehran to beirut and everything in between and, you know, the continuing concern with iran and its development, its -- i believe its strategic intent to have nuclear

there is someone more torn about this dilemma, and that is the president of the united states, who now realizes the reality of the situation. >> wasn't quite as torn during the campaign, was he? >> no. but he understand now. >> he understands now. it goes back to the conversation you had with a certain top official saying mike, if you knew what i knew every day, you wouldn't get out of bed in the morning. >> i was thinking about that the other day. the high-ranking guy, access to every security piece of paper that comes across the president's desk. he sees it beforehand, and i once asked him -- this is about a year and a half ago. and i said what's it like? you get up at 4:00 in the morning and you look at the intel reports. and if you look at what we see what the president sees, you probably wouldn't want to get out of bed every day. >> and he grapples with this and what our country is about. and it's the same issue with torture. they are very hard decisions. at the same time, what are we going to look like 10, 20, 30 years from now if we let this unravel. i agree it's very difficult. >> what
to welcome our views are around the world to cnn this evening here in the united states. 5:00 p.m. eastern on the east coast. we want to get right to our breaking news now. our anderson cooper is on the ground where they are trying to rescue a little girl, anderson right in the middle of it. what do you know? >> don, this has been going on for some four hours now and 15 or 20 minutes ago they got the best possible news, which are for the first time in the four hours that rescue personnel from l.a. county fire search and rescue teams have been working on this site, they got a distinctive three taps. they -- for the last four hours, they have sent in three different dogs that could recognize the scent of a living human being. one dog got what they described as showing interest but there were no positive hits. they would send in very delicate audio equipment, microphones and listening devices to hear and ask what they would yell into the rubble whether or not, if somebody could happen three times. and they would hear noises, they would hear what they thought was moaning one tile. they thought
as a shadowy double agent for jordan and the united states before he committed the ultimate betrayal. nbc's jim maceda is in kabul, afghanistan, with more. jim, what's been the reaction as we learn more about this man's background and what he apparently had planned? >> reporter: well, that's interesting, tamron, because he is a shadowy figure but he certainly was not an unknown figure. i'll explain why in a second. the details are emerging. they're not coming officially from the cia. the cia is still not speaking out about it but we're hearing from unnamed sources past and present officials that the gentleman we're talking about, this individual's name is a mouthful. a 36-year-old jordanian doctor by trade from the hometown of abu musaab al zarqawi, the iraqi leader back in 2006. now he was, again, well known. he was a leading fundamentalist blogger on a number of al qaeda websites and went by another name. he was arrested by jordanian intelligence. he was already known on those blogs. he was believed by the jordanian intelligence to have been flipped by them, sent into afghanistan and into pak
situation. this is not the united states. there's not the infrastructure that we would expect in the united states. the u.s. government is not responsible for, you know, the governing haiti and, yet, you know, there are ships offshore. there's a lot of expectation of aid and a lot of people are still dying. that is the bottom line, you know, at the end of every single sentence. people who don't need you are still dying. sanjay has seen the shortage up close. friday if you were watching the program, i hope you were, sanjay worked all night to care for more than two dozen patients in a field hospital. he was the only doctor remaining after a belgium medical team left the hospital because someone there had security concerns or the boss, the man in charge with them, had security concerns. some patients had just had surgery. sanjay's new team assisted that person. take a look at what happened friday. >> there is a patient here who had significant, what's called necrosis, where parts of her leg died as a result of crush injury. i'm trying to assess what's best for her. another patient over here h
of the united states before christmas of this past year. and this organization, in the shadow of the cia, was created to connect the dots. we've heard the president of the united states say the dots were out there and we simply did not connect them. so will this guy be the guy to go in it's interesting because a little before christmas he did grant an interview to npr, national public radio, and in it, and this is very troubling, he says we're not going to stop every attack. he goes on to say americans have to understand that it is impossible to stop every terrorist event, but we have to do our best. is a guy, who is saying, hey, look, we can't catch all the balls, is he the one you want in the job? perhaps his head will roll. >> they said in langly, they can't believe he didn't return to the back cave because that's where it is called and that's where the clearinghouse is. some of the pictures you have seen in the local newspapers of a second floor shot looking down at a bunch of tables, that's the counter terror center. for him to put on his goggles and go down the ski slopes is uncons
against the united states. barbara starr is with us, is he really behind this attack or is he just claiming responsibility? >> reporter: that is the question, john, that nobody knows the answer to. bin laden indirectly on this tape claiming responsibility for the christmas day attack, promising more attacks against the united states because of u.s. support for israel on the palestinian issue. u.s. counterterrorism official says, a message like this, no matter whose voice it should be, should come as no surprise. al qaeda has from time to time tried to build support for its program of murder talking about the palestinian issue. al qaeda in yemen by all accounts was behind the training and equipping of farouk abdulmutallab in that attack. these are affiliates inspired by bin laden, not necessarily awaiting direct orders from him, that of course has been going on for some time. the bottom line on that christmas day attack is it now demonstrates that one of these al qaeda affiliate does have the ability to reach out and touch american citizens. that's what the u.s. administration is fo
a spectacle of the american system of justice. i think the president of the united states has a solemn responsibility to obtain credible information to prevent future tag, giving this young man the rights of the american civil justice system, tens us the opportunity to treat him as an enemy combatant. the supreme courters have held the legality of military tribunals where they don't have to give them due process rights. this is a country, america, that is at war right now and treating this issue as a legal matter is a terrible miss taefl particularly when this terrorist individual in question has already indicated there are other people who are seeking to come to the united states to carry out terrorist acts. we need to treat this as a matter of war. >> did you give that speech when mr. bush and mr. cheney were prosecuting mr. moussaoui? you were in the white house. did you resign in protest? >> the difference here, of course, is that richard reid was on an airplane. we did not have the same system in place after 9/11 that we do here now. why after we know that there is credible inform

to be president of the united states? what is post-feminist a better society where are ads and television commercials are demeaning to women, such as one for a very popular chainstore that chose an adolescent girl lying on a target with the bowls i write between her legs. what is post-feminist i got a society with a subprime mortgage debacle go with particular hardship on poor women and women of color? these were women who were struggling to have a piece of the american dream. some were single moms, some were elderly mom's. and when they started out, their mortgage rates were raised that they could afford, only to see them adjusted and adjusted and adjusted upward until they had to forfeit their homes. anita hill, who is a law professor, brandeis university, has just completed a study in which she found that all women, no matter what their background, were charged more than men. even men in the same, differently -- comparable, i should say, financial situation. what is post-feminist about a society where movies, g. rated movies, the ones that we think are most appropriate for our young pe

first before you board a flight to the united states. not so. turns out prior to the attempted bombing, they didn't check their visas until they were in the air. it was a policy. it was not just an oversight. this is the federal policy. here is a quote from an obama official. the problem was not the misspelling but the system designed prior to christmas day at post, at main state, and nctc, the system did not require anyone to focus on the existence of the vis a. they are reeing the policy. but what is the point of the policy. why review the passport or visa when you are in the air if you contain them on the ground. >> explain the logic of even if they don't try to blow up the plane as you hope and it actually lands. still it is somebody's visa doesn't check out, you have to deport them back? >> you land the flight and stop in green land across thuar say you need to get off the flight. we fail to check your visa. it is a bigger problem. the rail system in this country. it would take amtrak and so forth. they don't check id's until you are on the train an hour into the train and then ch

token, he wants to ensure he works with the united states. flash backwards real quick. in october of 2000 when we were hit, his government flat denied there was a problem. it wasn't until one months later in 9/11 that the government of yemen began to truly cooperate and over time that cooperation has gone downhill. we can see already that just by their very actions, the government of yemen is not a reliable or trustworthy partner in the war on terrorism. they have, in fact, let one of the coconspirators from the attack on cole escape and is essentially free in the capitol today, and yet we want to return detainees to them. it doesn't make sense. we can't afford to be doing that. by the same token, we as a country need to be looking at how can we best engage with yemen to help that central government expand, similar to what's in afghanistan, so that the people throughout the country can realize that they are effective, they can provide for them, that the tribal leaders need to get on board with it, that we're not taking away their power, we're merely trying to get them to work with
